APS Member Survey—What Is Your Perception of the HCAHPS Pain Questions?

You are invited to participate in a national online survey sponsored by the APS Special Interest Group on Quality to determine healthcare providers’ perception of the validity of the current Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) pain questions and the impact of the questions on the quality of pain management in the United States. The survey is anonymous and takes approximately 5–10 minutes to complete. You will be asked to rate 20 questions plus provide comments on one open-ended item. To participate, please fill out this online survey.

The survey is open through April 30. We value your perception and encourage you to participate!
